When Do We Board-Up?
When owning a business, there are a few events that might occur unexpectedly, but not uncommonly. One of these occurrences is vandalism, specifically graffiti. Graffiti is one of those things that starts out as a joke performed by a few rebellious kids, to a malicious act that the whole town seems to be participating in. Once the first spray of spray paint has been applied, it's almost like a big target on the wall of your business. Because of this, when SERVPRO is called in for a vandalism job, we tend to proceed with a board up. This means boarding up as many doors and windows as possible to prevent further damage from happening. This will protect the glass entrances as well as products inside of your store.
We will also proceed with a board-up when a storm or fire has occurred and leaves parts of your building exposed to the outside. It minimized property loss by securing the facility and protecting restorable or reusable materials. A disaster can leave your business vulnerable to things such as unwanted entry, animal invasion, and further vandalism.
As always, if your business is in need of vandalism, fire, water, or storm cleaning, give us a call! You can contact us at 817-596-8714
